Access Issue: PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details
In the early '90's the USFS banned all placement of bolts in the Superstition Wilderness. This unfortunately includes replacement of existing bolts. Violating this ban may result in climbing restrictions on this beautiful area. Please think twice and go bolt somewhere else.
This route is supposed to climb the 5.4 face on the northwest side, but a giant Agave now grows at the wall's base. As a variation, we climbed the first crack about 15 feet to the left (east), joining the original route left of the bolt and traverse, finishing with the easy step series.
Standard set of pro, two bolt belay/rap, single line.
